    Thomas McKenney and James Hall Print: PEAH-MUS-KA: A MUSQUAKEE CHIEF. Hand colored, 14.5" x 21". Published by F. W. Greenough of Philadelphia. "Drawn, Printed & Coloured at I. T. Bowen's Lithographic Establishment No. 94, Walnut St." This print of Peah Mus Ka, a principle chief of the Musquakee (Fox) tribe, was included in Thomas McKenney and James Hall's Indian Tribes of North America with Hand Colored Engraving, a portfolio of Indian portraits printed from 1837-1844. McKenney, the head of the U. S. Bureau of Indian Affairs, battled to preserve parts of Native American culture. The Musquakee originally lived along the Saint Lawrence River. Gradually, their numbers dwindled and they were forced west by the encroaching Europeans. This large print has some very light staining and minor soiling along the edges. Fine. From the U. I. "Chick" and Cecilia Harris Collection.
